Property Description

Full description

An opportunity to acquire a Grade II Listed detached stone barn with both planning permission and listed building consent for conversion to a single residential dwelling with adjoining annexe.

The barn is situated on the very edge of Hinwick and currently forms part of the former farm yard area to a very attractive period stone farmhouse. The development is close to nearby Hinwick House which is situated within sight of the barn. The position is very appealing.

The current barn is of coursed local stone under a corrugated metal roof and the grounds that the barn will enjoy lay to the south side thus enjoying a sunny aspect. A quantity of building materials are already on site which the seller is happy to include within the sale subject to an agreement on an overall price.

The total site area is approximately 0.28 acre (approximately 0.11 hectare) or thereabouts.

The current proposed accommodation comprises: within the main accommodation; Entrance Hall, Living Room, Study, Living/Kitchen, Utility Room, WC, 2 double sized Bedrooms, Bathroom and within the Annexe; Living Room/Kitchen, Utility Room, WC, double sized Bedroom and En Suite. This could potentially be reconfigured (subject to gaining any necessary statutory consents) to provide an alternative interior layout to suit the eventual purchaser's requirements.

The Site - The site extends to approximately 0.28 acre (approximately 0.11 hectare) and comprises a stone built barn with corrugated metal sheet roof together with an area of former farmyard and exercise yard to the south side. The site has its own existing access from the side lane via timber double gates although prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with the highway provider to confirm suitable highway consent.

There is a quantity of building materials on site which the sellers are prepared to include subject to agreement on an overall price.

Location - The site is situated on the very edge of Hinwick which is a small hamlet which is located in north-west Bedfordshire close to the border with Northamptonshire.

The local towns of Rushden, Wellingborough and Bedford are within convenient reach (fast mainline railway service from both Wellingborough and Bedford to London St Pancras). The village is surrounded by very attractive countryside with many local walks.

Planning & Listed Building Consent - Planning Permission was granted by Bedford Borough Council on 9th February 2016 under Application Number: 15/02740/FUL in accordance with the application and plans validated on 19th November 2015. The particulars of the development are described as: Extension and conversion of barn to a residential dwelling and annexe and associated works. This application is understood to be Community Infrastructure Levy liable. A full copy of the planning permission is available upon request.

Listed Building Consent was granted by Bedford Borough Council on 9th February 206 under Application Number: 15/02741/LBC. A full copy of the Listed Building Consent is also available upon request.

Community Infrastructure Levy - From verbal enquiries made with Borough Council of Bedford we have been advised that a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) of £19,729 may be payable on this property at commencement of the works. We understand that if developed as a self-build and then continually lived in for a period of at least 3 years then the property should be exempt. Prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries directly with Bedford Borough Council to confirm any CIL liability. The contact number is (01234) 718574 or email

Approximate Floor Areas - The architect's plans show that the existing barn structure has a floor area of 153 square metres (1647 square feet). The proposed scheme after enlargement shows an overall finished floor area (single storey) of 266.31 square metres (2865.31 square feet).

Services - The sellers advise that mains water is already available on site. There is no mains drainage and so a private drainage system will be required. Mains electricity is not currently connected but is available for connection. Mains gas is not available. Potential purchasers must however make their own enquiries with the relevant utility providers to confirm availability of services prior to purchase.

Boundary Walls And Fences - The buyer will be responsible for the erection of boundary walls and fencing to separate the development from the sellers' retained property. These will need to be agreed by the sellers who lives in the adjoining retained property. To assist, the sellers will allow the buyers to dismantle an existing stone wall on the retained land in order that the stone recovered can then be re-used in the renovation/extension of the barn.

Intended Restriction - Please note that the sellers require that the barn once sold be used as one residential dwelling with associated annexe only and do not intend to sell for conversion to two or more separate residential units. The sellers intend that a suitable restriction will be included within the sale contract prepared by the sellers' solicitor.

Viewing Arrangements - Viewing is strictly by prior appointment with Harwoods. Potential purchasers are specifically asked not to enter onto the grounds without an appointment given that the barn forms part of an existing residential property and the privacy of the current owners must be respected.

To arrange an appointment to view please contact Michael Dent of Harwoods on 01933 278591 or email
